DA Bragg - Chicago - Power Outages
How Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg could get removed from office
Embattled Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is facing mounting calls to be ousted — especially in the wake of his soft-on-crime counterpart DA Chesa Boudin getting bounced from his job.
But unlike the recall vote against Boudin in San Francisco, which saw 60% of fed-up voters rejecting his progressive politics, the power of removing a district attorney in New York falls to the governor.
“If the governor has information that [a] district attorney is not properly fulfilling his or her duties, she then can request that an investigation be conducted,” Donald Chesworth, a former Monroe County district attorney, told The Post.
Chicago’s Crime Rates Updated 2022
Whether you call it the Windy City, the City of Big Shoulders, or just “Chi-Town,” Illinois’ largest city is known for its deep-dish pizza, its popular sports teams, and, yes, for one of the highest crime rates in the country. Recent crime statistics say that for every 100,000 people, there are 3,926 crimes in Chicago. And violent crime is a big reason why. In this blog, you get all the information you need to know about Chicago’s crime rates.
How dangerous is Chicago?
Statistics say that the crime rate in Chicago in 2020 was 3,926 crimes per 100,000 people. That’s 67% more than the national average and a lot more than Illinois’s average rate of 1,985 crimes per 100,000 people. Part of the reason why Chicago’s crime rates are talked about so much is that violent crimes like murder, sexual assault, and robberies are a bigger part of the city’s high crime rate than property crimes like burglary, arson, or car theft.

Everyone has the right to live the healthiest life possible — though this is still not the reality for people in far too many communities.
Giving every community an equitable chance at being healthy means looking beyond medical care alone. There are persistent political, economic, and social inequities and injustices that affect all the sectors that serve our communities and have a disproportionate impact on the health of marginalized communities.
California and the West face a summer of power outages
The long-lasting, severe drought affecting California is likely to have major ramifications for how the region generates electricity this summer, as well as how reliable and costly that supply is, according to a new report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
Driving the news: The drought's depletion of California's large reservoirs is likely to strain hydroelectric plants to the point where some may have to be shut down.
